I am all about easy cooking and watching the budget. Cherry tomatoes go with all types of fresh herbs, I usually buy either parsley, chives, basil or rosemary and use it in recipes until it’s gone. The next time I go to the store, I try a different herb for variety. If I buy too many at one time, I usually don’t use them all before they go bad. This simple recipe combines leftover cooked green beans with fresh tomatoes and parsley. I usually cook a double batch of fresh vegetables as a head start to the next days meals.
